I made this card for the December challenge at the SSPT blog. The card was cut with a Big Shot Pro die. The Poinsettia flower was cut with a Marianne Design Die and I used a Cuttlebug folder to do the embossing. TFL.
I know I haven't posted in a while but I have been busy creating decorations for my job and designing the Christmas bullentin boards. Right now, I'm in Jacksonville, Florida right now. My husband, sister in law, Pebbles and I left on Friday to bring our GD Rian back to her mommy. Rian had been in SC since Thanksgiving. I bought my Expression along for the ride in order to decorate the walls in her room. TFL.
My DD's B-day is next Monday, so I made her this name art to hang on her wallin her room. I used my G and I to cut the letters (Gypsy Font). The flowers are from the Cuttlebug Quilling Set. I also used my newest MS punch. I put her most recent school pic on it. I hope she like it.
It did the same thing as the first one. It's rollers wouldn't roll in order to pull the paper through the machine. I'm very disappointed, but I'm working on some cute treat boxes for a Halloween party so that task is keeping me busy. As soon as I have a day off I will be sending my I back for number 3.
I hadn't used it in a while and with this being a four day weekend for me I decided to do another layout and then it happened, my Imagine wouldn't load the paper at all the rollers wouldn't roll. Now I have to wait until PC emails me a return label so I can get my I replaced. I did do a HTV onesie for my GD today, but I forgot to take a picture and she took it with her. Good thing I just purchased a Big Shot Pro so I can play with that. I gave my DD my Hello Kitty Big Shot and she has been having a blast with it. She out grew her Cuttlekids machine. I can't wait until the Grand Nesties become available.
I made this layout using the Imagine More cart. My DD was six years old in this picture. I used a lot of embellishments on this layout and I love the way it came out. It looks much better in person. The flash from the camera made it seem so light in color but it isn't. The butterfly is a Marianne Design Die. I stamped the picture with Starzon ink. TFL.
At the SSPT blog Carrie (Greenbean) issued the following challenge, "This challenge you're going to "fall" in love with! That's right, it's all about autumn! With all the leaves turning, it's given me the inspiration to work with all those purty (sorry that's the WV in me) colors. So break out your reds, purples, oranges, golds and greens and create something totally fall-some!" I would have loved to use some warm fall colors in my submission, but all my fall stuff is at work since I'm working on bulletin boards again. So I had to hunt hard in my craftroom to find some Halloween themed items & paper and this is what I came up with: a large treat bag. I made the rossette with my new Sizzix die that just came in the mail today from http://www.stampingscrapping.com/. TFL
I was very surpsrised to see my Imagine box in my laundry room when I came home from work today, because I didn't pay extra for shipping and the shipping date on my order said 9-23. Updating was easy and cutting and printing was fine also. The only thing that I don't like is the lack of stickyness (is that a word?) on the mat. So I had to use glue on a "brand new" mat. Here are a few of my first cuts, yeah I'm gonna be buying a lot of ink. I love the princess, as soon as the printable vinyl comes that I purchased she will be all over my DD room! So far I'm really loving my Imagine.
I felt like I had to have this cute little paper mache bag when I saw it in Pictures In Time in Jacksonville, Fl. As a matter of fact I purchased three of them. If you are ever in Jacksonville, please stop by Pictures In Time Scrapbook store she has a lot of great things! Today I finally got around to decorating one of them. I used a few cuts from the Creative Memories Reminisce Accents cart, Heartfelt Creations dies & stamps and MS punches. TFL.
Lately I have been doing a lot of cleaning and trying to organize my DD's room and my Craft room. I'm satisfied with the work that my DH & I did in her bedroom, but I dare not ask him to come in here and assist me with organizing. I can hear his words already, "You don't need to buy anything else!" So in between the cleaning & traveling to Florida to see our GD, I was able to do a few simple projects: A bookmark for Pebbles, an embossed frame (Cricut) for her room), a decorated Picture frame (Cricut) and labels for her drawers (Cricut & SCAL). TFL.
I really enjoyed CKC-Charlotte this year, I left Thursday with my DH & DD in tow. We stayed at the Hilton and thanks to my Nextar GPS we found our way around the city and we ventured to the Concord Mills Outlet. Hubby has finally admitted that my Nextar is better than his Garmin. When we used my GPS we travelled without incident, but when we used his GPS all we heard was "recalculating, make a U-turn as soon as possible". Wr also travelled to the Northlake Mall & went to the movies to see "Expendables" which had all of our favorite action hereos in it. We walked around the city a lot and had a great time. I have a lot of pictures that I need to get printed. The Vendor Faire was good, but could have been better. There was a lot of paper & embellishments, but not a lot of gadgets. I did see Cricut Dan, but he didn't have the Cart that I wanted, "Happy Hauntings". I shopped at the Vendor Faire both days and we left Charlotte on Sunday. My DH & DD can't wait to go again next year.
I decorated these shirts & onsies for my 2 Grands and my little cousin. I was able to use two of the new Cricut lite carts for the baby girl onsies. I used the font from Lovely Floral and the heart is from Lacey Labels. SCAL was also used on the tee shirts and one of the onesies. TFL.
Today I received my order from Scrapyland.com. I ordered two of the new cutting/embossing folders and a Daisy Quilling set. I really love the new folders not just because they cut out a window, but because they are metal and gives a deeper, crisp embossed finish. Using my supplies that I received today I quickly put together this card. TFL.
